Björn Borg kicks off London Fashion Week with an exclusive event. A short-film was launched on an enormous spray screen over the River Themes with Swedish pop icon Robyn performing in a Scandinavian inspired winter landscape. This event is a step in Bjorn Borg’s increased global fashion brand building efforts and international expansion.

This event takes place at London landmark Battersea Power Station, which Björn Borg transforms into a miniature Sweden with a pine forest, snow, hot tubs, sauna and Swedish sushi. Outside, a fashion film in 4D directed by award winning Paris Kain will be launched at a 25x50 metre screen of steam over the River Themes. The brand will also showcase their autumn/ winter collection 2012 and offers entertainment with Robyn in an exclusive co-performance with Coco Sumner.
“A key element in our growth efforts is edgy branding activities such as this event in London, in one of our most important expanding markets. They strengthen Björn Borg in existing markets and prior to expansion to new ones. Thanks to its stable financial position, Björn Borg can invest long-term in future growth”, comments Arthur Engel, CEO of Björn Borg.
Other important parts of Björn Borg’s expansion include an expansion to new markets such as China in 2012, a broadened range of sportswear, global e-commerce and the addition of more Björn Borg stores in Europe. In 2011, total sales of Björn Borg products amounted to almost SEK 1.7 billion excluding VAT, at the consumer level.
